Premature Ejaculation: An Insightful and Honest Evaluation

Premature Ejaculation: It’s Not Just for Teens in the American Pie

Premature ejaculation may seem like a funny punch line to giggle at but it is a great cause of shame in many men young and old. It can affect your self-confidence and your sense of worth. It can cause frustrations in your sexual relationships and it may feel as though there is no hope for your sex life.

Who it affects

Many young men and boys suffer from the issue of premature ejaculation as they are going through puberty and early teen years. Usually coupled with spontaneous erections which can be embarrassing for the young boy. It usually corrects itself as the young man matures. But you would be surprised at the actual number of men who go through this issue at many different stages of life. Anywhere from 30 – 70% of men report having experienced it at some point in their lives. It is the most common sexual disorder in men under 40 years old. In much of history, it was considered a psychological disease, and there were no known organic causes.

What it is

Premature Ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates without control or orgasms too quickly. There are numerous reasons why this may happen and some of those reasons may be depression, stress, or mental or emotional health which can all aggravate this condition. There is growing evidence that some biological factors may make some men more prone to premature ejaculation.

Why it happens

A few of the things that could make this happen to a man are, intense arousal toward another person, the sensation of his boxers or sheets rubbing against his penis, exertion during exercise causing more blood flow to the penis, making it erect and from that point any light stimulation causing him to reach orgasm. This can not only occur during sexual/ oral intercourse but even during masturbation. Some men can have an erection suddenly and prematurely ejaculate without even touching the penis.

What are the effects

As you can imagine, these instances where you are not in a sexual setting can be devastatingly embarrassing. But this can be equally stressful when it happens with a partner. Sex is a form of great pleasure and connection for many couples. Enjoying the sensations of another persons body, and becoming closer and connecting through the emotional aspects of sex. But when a man has his orgasm too early this can leave the other party upset. The encounter is cut short with no release from the other person. This can hurt the relationship in many ways including emotionally. It can make a man so embarrassed that he avoids sexual contact all together, in fear of it happening again.

How to avoid

But there is hope for this man. For one, usually with time and maturity the problem will resolve itself. But there are a few things you can do to fix the problem sooner. First things first, admitting there is a problem is undoubtedly the very first step in fixing the problem…admitting you have one. As reported by having open and honest discussions about the issue may be very intimidating and scary but it is crucial. You should have talks with your partner about this and assure them that it is something you want to work on and that you could use a little patience and support. It is not something to be ashamed or embarrassed about.


Of the many techniques you can try, some things to consider are masturbating an hour or two before sexual intercourse to delay ejaculation during sex. You could try avoiding direct sex and enjoy other forms of sexual play, focusing on the pleasure of the activity as a whole, and not putting so much pressure on the climax and sex itself. Another thing to try would be pelvic floor exercises. Weak pelvic floor muscles impair your ability to delay orgasm. These exercises help strengthen these muscles and could give you more control before ejaculation. You could also consider using condoms as they tend to decrease sensitivity in the penis. There are even condoms you can buy that contain numbing agents and are made of thicker latex.

These features could significantly increase your chance of an erection lasting much longer for your partner to enjoy.

Consult your physician

Many methods could help with your premature ejaculation, so talk to your doctor today to see which methods are right for you and your partner.

Viagra… will it be the end-solution to your love-life problems

Did you know that Viagra discover was a happy accident?

Sildenafil (Viagra active substance) was synthesized by Pfizer, an american pharmaceutical corporation, to treat hypertension and Angina pectoris. The problem was that the new drug was not successful in treat the target diseases, but trial volunteers reported an unusual side effect of the treatment: many erections. After investigating this unexpected outcome Pfizer launched Viagra in 1998. At the time was the first oral treatment to erectile dysfunction and even today sildenafil is the most used treatment to ED, even here in Australia.

Therefore Viagra and its generic version (Sildenafil citrate) is the most commonly used treatment for impotence in Australia and the market is really vast:

About one million of Australians are affected by an Erection Dysfunction of some sort.

It’s important to understand that Viagra itself doesn’t solve the problem but help relieve the symptoms of this disabling condition. Although Viagra patent will expire in 2020 Pfizer has released its generic version from 2012. A reason for this is the development of similar molecules: tadalafil, vardenafil and avanafil. Cialis (tadalafil) was patented by Glaxo and launched in US in 2003 while Levitra (vardenafil), a branded drug from Bayer, was launched in american market in 2005. In 2012 Menarini launched Spedra (avanafil), another Viagra-like drug. The four active substances are approved to use in Australia, and are available in pharmacies after a GP prescription: that’s implies that Viagra is not available over the counter in Australian pharmacies.

It’s clear that Pfizer’s leading position in ED drugs market is facing a tough competition and from 2020 a myriad of generics will adjudicate a large share of the market

Another interesting fact about the ED drugs market that surely will change the way erectile dysfunctions will be treated in every part of the world, Australia included, is the recent development of a new ED drug: Eroxon. Futura, the UK pharmaceutical company that is still trialling Eroxon, promise that the new drug will work more quickly than Viagra and will have fewer side effects. That’s because glyceryl trinitrate (Eroxon) will be available as a cream to be applied in the penis and not a systemic drug available as an oral tablet like Viagra and other similar drugs.

Like Eroxon it’s likely that new treatments will be researched and developed in an area, Erectile dysfunction treatment, that de facto hasn’t seen real innovation since the launch of Viagra. In respect to this is interesting to note that a high percentage of Viagra users stop using it within a year, and it’s remarkable that effectiveness of Viagra is limited to 70% of patients. Furthermore a substantial number of people cannot use it because of health risk factors, such as patients with infarction and other heart or blood vessel problems, people with severe liver conditions or blood pressure dysfunctions. All this numbers suggest that a new ED treatment would get easily a large market share in the future. An example of new approaches to ED in a post Viagra treatment era is the interest of research on sound waves and their ability to regenerate erectile tissues.

A research conducted in South Africa in PD (Peyronie disease) erectile dysfunction affected men has shown that low intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LiESWT) can be a valuable treatment for these difficult-to-treat disabling ED conditions. Even gene therapy could be a viable solution: it’s already successfully used in different disease treatments. However these therapies are highly experimental and twill be not available for all patients in the immediate future.

As a matter of fact Viagra will remain the main ED therapy for ED affected Australians for a long time yet

The problems to be solved are numerous like the lesser effectiveness of Viagra in longtime users and the social stigma associated with the use of Viagra because of which most patients will not speak with their doctor or seek advice on their ED condition with medic personnel. This is a major cause of improper use of Viagra and ED drugs not only in Australia but everywhere, and often customers that purchase Viagra online receive generic products, with serious safety issues.

Australian government recommends to buy Viagra from reputable online pharmacies that require prescription

In many countries of the world, like New Zealand and UK prescription it’s not more required to buy Viagra and other ED drugs, easing the availability of good quality and safe drugs for patients that don’t feels psychologically ready to speak about their ED problems with a doctor. In the near future this could happen even in Australia, if legislators change their approach to ED drugs availability.

2020 will mark the end of Era of Viagra, but one can be certain that innovations in ED treatment are on the way

For now we’ll wait and look forward to the changes that are coming from market, research and legislation in Australia and in the rest of the world.
